Community Dance Gala
Presented by Dawns i Bawb
Galeri, Thurs 29 June 2017, 19:00
Dawns i Bawb showcases the talents of inclusive and disability-led community dance groups from Wales, including APT, Dragon’s Heart and Dragon’s Soul (formerly Tan Dance), InSync and WISP.
Dawns i Bawb (‘dance for all’) take pride in their name: it is an organisation which believes that anyone and everyone can dance! Spanning three counties, Dawns i Bawb run a varied programme of activities from large-scale productions to small dance groups of a few individuals. Inclusivity and the idea that dance can positively contribute to disadvantaged and isolated communities are the common themes throughout everything they do.
APT Dance and Theatre Company is an inclusive integrated dance and theatre company which performs locally, nationally and internationally. Find out more about APT Dance.
Dragon’s Heart and Dragon’s Soul are creating an exciting piece of new work especially for the Community Dance Gala. Find out more about Dragon's Heart and Dragon's Soul.
InSync are an inclusive group from Artis Community Dance, bringing ‘What are you looking at?’ a short dance piece themed around the works of Graffiti artist Banksy, with each scene inspired by a different painting or character from his work. Find out more about Artis Community Dance.
WISP Dance Club was created in 1994 as the first out-of-school dance and performance group for young people with special educational needs or learning disabilities in the North Wales area. Find out more about WISP.
